Garmin Streetpilot I3
By D Dunbar in GPS. July 24, 2006
This thing is tiny, about the size of a baseball according to Garmin, which may well translate to the cricket ball for us in the UK, or if you're not feeling very sporty about 7.5cm wide and 7cm tall.
Garmin Streetpilot i3
Despite it's tiny size the i3 will perform many of the same functions of a normal sized GPS device, such as; voice prompted turn by turn directions through its built-in speaker and maps displayed either in 2D or 3D on its non-reflective, 32000 colour screen. The i-series features a unique click-to-enter scroll wheel and a back button which makes it easy to select a destination from the unit's menu-driven interface.
It can be powered for up to 6 hours from just 2 AA batteries or by the included 12V cigarette adaptor cable. You also get a suction cup mount and Garmin's POI loader software, which lets you upload POIs such as those featured at poifinder.com and poi editor.com.. There's a 128MB Transflash data card included which stores hundreds of built in points of interest.
